I can't change the notebook when saving a document in Evernote for Android

When I save the PDF to Evernote on my Android phone, there is already a notebook pre-selected. The problem is, it's not the notebook that I want to save to. When I share to Evernote, I type in the name of the notebook that I want to search for, but it will not search for it. I have to save it to the notebook that it has selected for me, and then later go in there and actually move the document to the folder that I want.


This is not using a Web Clipper or anything like that, it's simply sharing a PDF or other document to Evernote. Is this a known bug in Evernote for Android?

I concur... If I share a PDF to Evernote I have to save in the default notebook.  Selecting a different notebook just doesn't work. I can type the name of the new notebook in the search box but nothing is found.

It has been an issue since the Android version 10 was released and I've just worked with the issue but a support ticket would be the way forward.

Problem is not limited to saving PDF. I have this problem when clipping webpages. However, the problem is only with Samsung S10+ mobile. I can change Notebook when clipping on the Xiaomi Note 10

Additional problem is that I can see multiple notebook of the same name on the Xiaomi

Well that's curious... I only have the option to search. The notebooks available to select from are solely my default.

SUPER FRUSTRATING! What a time suck. To have to go back in to the default notebook and then individually move each note to where I want it. This is what is so frustrating about this whole new role out. When basic functionalities that have become a  part of our everyday workflow just disappear out of no where. How could a program all of a sudden not do something basic that it was able to do before. COME ON EVERNOTE! . . . .

I resolved things by uninstalling and reinstalling the app ;)

In my case, the ONLY notebook available to select is one that seems to have gotten stuck there at some point. It is NOT my default notebook.


I will try the uninstall/reinstall method.


 Edit: Worked for me! Thanks!
